My View: A Game-Changing Major

Ann DeMarle, director here at the Emergent Media Center and associate professor of Communications and Creative Media at Champlain College, authored a blog post for CNN's Schools of Thought blog. 

"In strong degree programs, students learn much more than simply how to create games. They become modern-day storytellers, reflectively applying game design skills to a host of challenges facing our world. Technology, arts, interactivity, and social understanding are in their toolboxes. Immersed in 21st-century problems, they develop critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills. Working in teams, they come to understand how disciplines can work together to produce innovation and value."
